Nuland departed on Thursday and will follow her trip to Kiev with a visit to Nicosia, Cyprus on September 14-15, where she will meet with senior Cypriot officials to discuss further advancing bilateral relations, according to the State Department.

Nuland will also meet with Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot leaders to encourage further talks to finally resolve their long-running dispute.

Nuland is a former chief of staff to Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott under US President Bill Clinton. She also served as principal foreign policy advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney and then as US ambassador to NATO.

More recently, Nuland was the center of controversy after she was revealed in a leaked January 28, 2014 recorded phone conversation with US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, in which she made an obscene reference to the European Union while discussing her preference for a prime minister of Ukraine.
